A 31-year-old driver from the province of Granada, was sent to provisional prison today, Thursday, July 22, by a judge in Granada’s Court of Instruction No7, without the possibility of bail, after he was arrested last Sunday morning (July 18) for running over a 51-year-old cyclist on a road near the municipality of Quentar, then fleeing the scene, leaving his victim seriously injured.
According to judicial sources, who informed Europa Press, the detainee is under investigation for a crime of attempted murder, and another of dangerous driving, after the Guardia Civil concluded that his action had been deliberate against the bike rider.
His victim is still in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Traumatology Hospital in Granada capital, with his condition reported to Europa Press by a hospital spokesman as being stable within gravity, given the multiple injuries he received, which included a fracture of the pelvis and some vertebrae.
